The J&B Cable Reel provides for the security and protection of your ground power cables. Cable Reels are available for mounting under a bridge (JB7709), in a hangar or on the ramp (JB5159). The use of the electrically powered reel by the service personnel promotes the safe storage of your investment. Cables that are manually stowed are less likely to be put away. Leaving them laying around or stowed improperly makes them susceptible to damage.
Use of a Cable Reel not only protects your investment but it also reduces obstructions for personnel and ramp vehicles while at the same time creating a better organized ground crew.

JB5159 Cable Reel Ramp/Floor Mount
Both commercial and military customers alike have installed J&B Aviation's Cable Reels with great success. 400 Hz cables are the most frequently repaired ground power product, often attributed to the fact that cables are left vulnerable on the tarmac or hangar floor.
The Cable Reel is a popular option amongst customers for help in eliminating obstacles from a hangar's maintenance floor, or from hustle and bustle of ramp activity.
In conjunction with the Cable Reel, the utilization of J&B's popular single-jacketed, high-performance 400 Hz power cables, with patented replacement contact sections, and with ON/OFF and UP/DOWN push-buttons in the head, allows for the reel assemblies to be virtually maintenance-free for optimal performance.
